EngenuitySC Coordinated with the Governor's School for Science and Math to Host the First "Columbia Experience"

EngenuitySC recently partnered with the Governor's School for Science and Math to host the first "Columbia  Experience Day" for 60 talented juniors and seniors.  This day was part of a  program organized by GSSM in order to highlight the entrepreneurial spirit of Columbia, Charleston, Greenville, and Lake City.  The objective was for each student to develop an appreciation for the innovative and progressive spirit that is alive and well at home in South Carolina, and to inspire them to stay here after college.

Students who visited Columbia were given a tour of the city that included a stop at the Midlands IT-oLogy facility.  At IT-oLogy the group heard presentations from local leaders and entrepreneurs about why our community is so special.  Highlights of the day included: a visit from Mayor Benjamin, a presentation from the Executive Director of EngenuitySC, Neil McLean, a presentation from the creators of 52 Apps, and a special viewing of the Ignite! promo video.
